New York Times Schools For Tomorrow – Day 2 John McWhorter, a black Columbia University linguistics professor, is urging parents who are “truly anti-racist” to pull their children out of a private school that has started to teach far-left critical race theory.
McWhorter’s remarks about Dwight-Englewood School come in response to English teacher Dana Stangel-Plowe’s decision to resign from the school over allegations that it is indoctrinating students with the Marxist theory .
“All hail Dana Stangel-Plowe, who has resigned from the Dwight-Englewood school, which teaches students ‘antiracism’ that sees life as nothing but abuse of power, and teaches that cringing, hostile group identity against oppression is the essence of a self,” McWhorter tweeted. “Truly antiracist parents, in the name of love of their kids, should pull them from the Dwight-Englewood school as of next fall. Only this will arrest these misguided Elect parishioners from their quest to forge a new reality for us all.” Truly antiracist parents, in the name of love of their kids, should pull them from the Dwight-Englewood school as of next fall. Only this will arrest these misguided Elect parishioners from their quest to forge a new reality for us all.

I believe that D-E is failing our students. Over the past few years, the school has embraced an ideology that is damaging to our students’ intellectual and emotional growth and destroying any chance at creating a true community among our diverse population. I reject the hostile culture of conformity and fear that has […]
